How I Use It
Hour of Code from Code.org is a great way to introduce coding. The Hour of Code activities and media are fantastic. The children love CSE week and look forward to the Hour of Code every year.
My Take
I really enjoy using the Hour of Code activities and then following up with the Code.org activities. If you sign up for Code.org there is a wealth of resources and student progress is easily tracked. The activities work well with all populations from beginner to advanced. All of the concepts of coding- commands, loops, events, if statements, etc are introduced to the students at an appropriate time and reinforced throughout the units. I really enjoy using Code.org
